Future Stars of Southampton Explorer Camp offers an exciting week-long program filled with educational explorations via kayaking, paddle boarding, boating, hiking, and beachcombing for campers ages 6-14.
Our goal is to promote a lifelong appreciation of and engagement with water sports, outdoor recreation and environmental stewardship. Each day has an off-site exploratory field trip where we emphasize a major curricular focus such as paddle skills, bay ecosystems, and marsh ecology along with related games, activities and art projects that are both physically challenging and mentally engaging. Prepare to get your feet wet, hands dirty, and minds blown!
